Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From the Angel season 4 episode Peace Out:

A 'grizzled' reporter indicates just how much the world has changed with his first question at Jasmine's press conference, which had to be cut.
"Yeah, I got a question all right... One I think the world demands an answer to. Exactly how do you get your hair so shiny and bouncy like that? What is that, like a special conditioner or..."

PS. I forgot to publish last week's script-post, I just saved it as a draft. Here's the link.

Oh Dear God, Not Santa!

My song fic to the Jingle Bells melody inspired by the scene in The Body when Anya told the Scoobies the truth about Santa Claus.

The fic.

"That's a GIRL's arse."

Happy holidays! From time to time I like to go check out the Eclectic Micks blog. They have some real fun stuff over there, like Stephen Mooney's (Angel After the fall, Not Fade Away) sketch here. I'm not sure what's funnier, the image or the artists's comments.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From the ep Awakening (Angel, season 4) when Angelus comes back.

The script translates Wo-Pang's ritual to take Angel's soul as follows:
I call upon the Five Powers... Kun, Zhen, Xun, Kan, Li... Grant me access to the being. The fire within. that it may be brought without. I call to the One who has awakened. His will be done...

The spell in non-English.

The SDK is back!

The Supernatural Defense Kit is back. It's been sold out for a while and prices have been going high on ebay, but as you see here, it's available again and for a way more reasonable price.

Side note, this version of The Final Cut is probably (unless I remember wrong) the version that ended up in the Omnibus.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

Remember possesed Cordy killing Lilah in Calvary?

Presumably to keep the secret of Cordelia being the big bad from leaking, the episode revelation is written as follows in the script;

Lilah hightails it, rounds a corner, hurries down the long hallway, looks back over her shoulder when WHAM! She's GRABBED by someone in an open doorway (and very much O.S.). Lilah gasps, real fear on her face.

LILAH: He's gonna kill us!


ANGELUS: I know.

He spins Lilah around in one fluid motion-DRIVES the BEAST'S DAGGER into the side of Lilah's THROAT, destroying her only chance to scream.

(I'm once again quoting Angel: The Casefiles)

Does anyone know what "and very much O.S." means?

I got my sketchbooks!

So I just got my two Stephen Mooney sketchbooks, which includes all sorts of sketches from the Angel comics he drew, and also of indivudual comissions.

He also sent me a sketch of Angel (by misstake, he meant to send it to someone else, but I got to keep it), seen below (my scanner sucks, the sketch if actually darker and has blue outlines).

To se a bigger version of the sketch click here.

He was also kind enough to sign both of the books, right below his printed name on the front.

More info on the sold out sketchbook(but nag him and he might do a second printing).

Ebay bargains

It was a while since I posted about any bargains I've found on ebay, so I thought I would share two:

Both are from the same seller and he/she told me combined shipping would be fine.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script.

A line cut from Tomorrow (last ep of season 3 of Angel).

Lilah enjoys the potential for irony in her conversation with Wes.
"Cheer up. Angel find the kid with blood on his hands, he might just prove you right about that propechy: 'The father will kill the son.' OOO! Maybe he'll slit his throat."

This excerpt might have been intended for this or this conversation.

I've been thinking about religion...

...and my religion is Whedondom. Joss Whedon is our main God, but we believe in his family members as well.

I mainly pray to the demi-God Hot Platina, but I worship more entities from the Goddom of Buffy & Angel, for example The Chosen One and The Broody One. But I also recognize the awesomeness of the other Jossverses and their demi-Gods.

Some verses I have more fate in than others, for example I hold the Firefly-verse above the Dollhouse-verse.

It's a very individual religion, you can choose what or who to worship without the other Jossverses wanting to stake you (that would be "crucify" for Christians). Normally. Some fanatics (a.k.a. fanboys and fangirls) could overreact in case you don't worship "correctly".

Even tough this is a relatively individual religion, there's a few commendments, do's and don'ts. Here are a few:

* Do not call Season 8 "Just a comic", even tough Joss Whedon has confirmed it to be canon. Unless he un-canonize the comic, IT'S CANON. Period. You may argue that it's not as canon as the TV-show, but It. Is. Canon.

* Do not claim that Spuffy is better than Bangel, or vice versa. You may have a preference, and appreaciate different aspects of one relationship while dislikeing the other relationship, but unless you wish to start a holy war, do not say that one shipping 'rules' while the other one 'sucks'. There will be blood.

* No character is perfect.

* No writer is perfect.

*There is never only ONE absolute true interpretation of anything that happens on the show (sometimes even God's interpretation can be disgareed with). Holding your interpretation above other worshippers and calling the people who disagree with you non-believers or 'fanboys' och 'fangirls' when your patience leaves you is a death sin (lucky for us tough, in this religion we believe in resurrection, returning from the dead, so committing death sins? Not that big a deal.).
